Singer and actor Peter Andre will star as Teen Angel in select performances during an upcoming tour of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s musical Grease. The production will tour the U.K. and Ireland in 2019 following a sold-out, eight-week run at Leicester's Curve theatre in 2016.
Grease is directed by Nikolai Foster and choreographed by Arlene Phillips. Further casting will be announced.
The tour will open at Leeds Grand Theatre, where it will play June 19–July 20, 2019. Grease will then play at Cliffs Pavilion, Southend, Sunderland Empire, Birmingham Hippodrome, King's Theatre, Glasgow, Curve, Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin, New Theatre, Oxford, and Churchill Theatre, Bromley.
Andre will appear at certain performances in Leeds, Southend, Sunderland, Birmingham, Leicester, Dublin, Oxford, and Bromley.
Andre is known for his music and television career. He became the sixth highest-selling artist in the U.K. in the 1990s with such songs as "Mysterious Girl," "Flava," and "I Feel You." He's been seen on TV in Peter Andre: My Life, 60 Minute Makeover, and the third series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
Grease will feature designs by Colin Richmond, orchestrations and musical supervision by Sarah Travis, lighting design by Guy Hoare, and sound design by Sebastian Frost. For more information visit Greasethemusicalontour.com.
